The Courtyard in Hereford is almost all things to all people, providing an astonishing range of arts events, education, social interaction and opportunities.

Its programmes cover live theatre, dance, music, cinema, exhibitions, talks, classes, workshops and creative projects and they cater for people of every age and disposition.

The Courtyard is a fantastic resource for the people of Herefordshire and beyond, having a 400 seat main theatre, a 120 seat studio theatre (showing smaller scale productions and regular film screenings), rehearsal rooms, a gallery, meeting areas and an award winning café serving a wide range of meals, snacks and drinks.

It supports a thriving Youth Theatre as well as an adult participation programme and stages everything from cutting edge drama to pantomime.

Cinema showings vary from child-friendly animations and blockbusters to independent films.

The Courtyard constantly strives to be as inclusive as possible and were the first arts venue in the UK to become dementia friendly. Its Creative Ageing project was established in 2010, delivering arts sessions to care homes to help improve the health and wellbeing of older people. Everything they do they try to make as inclusive as possible, from subtitled screenings and more relaxed screenings for people on the autistic spectrum to a Courtyard Club/Card scheme offering young audiences affordable tickets and regular inclusive workshops.

The Courtyard’s doors are open to absolutely everyone in the community.
